Take It Away, Childhood Music Memories!

So for the past week or so I've been mainlining Christmas music in my car. That includes all four of the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CDs (classic, old, and electronic versions of various carols), the King's Singers Christmas CD (a wonderfully talentd a capella group), and the Oak Ridge Boys Christmas album. The last one is odd for anyone who knows me, because the Oak Ridge Boys is a country group, and I generally can't stand the genre. But the Oak Ridge Boys' album has been part of our family's Christmas celebration from my earlierst childhood memory, and it isn't Christmas without at least one playing of "Jesus Was Born Today," "Christmas Carol," or "Happy Christmas Eve."

How about the rest of y'all? What's your holiday favorites?
